Ashwin had an incredible outing in the second Test with an eight-wicket haul as well as a 106-run knock in the second innings.

The off spinner old Kohli that without the game of cricket he feels lost and also revealed how he worked on his game during the lockdown in 2019.

"Look, I think, the whole pandemic thing and the way we were shut off, I was thinking what is going to happen? If you take this game away from me, I am literally lost. Even when I am not playing some formats of the game, I am always switching the TV on like watching the preview and what is happening," Ashwin told Kohli. 

About his performance in the Test against England, Ashwin said, "I don't know, for the first time in my career, I feel blank. When I went out to bat yesterday, I was feeling blank, I came and asked you can I start sweeping? That's exactly how I am feeling, zero emotions and feelings inside, rarely I find myself like this."
